This pressy is a Diary for my son Richard. He has a lot of pretty life threatening illness which he battles with every day so although this is a diary to help him remember his appointments (He has short term memery loss) it is also to help him record special moments in time every day. I have been reading up on cognitive behavioral psychology and was struck by the idea that it is possible to change one's attitude towards a difficult life by changing the focus of your thoughts, instead of being focused on the negative things in your life, every day find one beautiful moment to be thankful for and record that moment so that on reading back through the diary in difficult times, one has a bank of positive memories to gain pleasure from. Hope it helps him, might make one for me too!!
So here it is
It's a Poundland special again covered with copy paper and PVA left to dry then painted with gesso and acrylic paint put on with a baby wipe, stamped with some inspirational text n such and then given a good coat of spray varnish.
The tags I made earlier in the year using the same paints and thought they just finished it off.
Also made this little beauty which Janet showed us at the last craft class, I think it's a project she found on Splitcoast Stampers but it's a lovely little stocking filler
I've enjoyed the messy play, now I'm off to do some more. Hope you're all having fun and finding special moments in time.
